Since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted a yearly fundraiser
in the form of a workout called Fight Gone Bad. Last year, we raised over $21,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation
(BCF), a local organization dedicated to improving the lives of people
in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving,
grantmaking, and community service. This year, we'll be partnering with
BCF again and hope to surpass last year's donation numbers.
Last year we had 160 members participating and this year, we’re capping it at 200.
The registration deadline is Friday September 21rd, 2018.
When is Fight Gone Bad?
Saturday, October 20th, 2018. First heat begins at 9am.
What is Fight Gone Bad?
Three rounds, as many reps as possible, of:
Wall-balls, 20lb, 10ft / 14lb, 9ft
Sumo deadlift high-pulls, 75/55 pounds
Box Jumps, 20" box
Push-presses, 75/55 pounds
In this workout, you move from each of five stations after a minute.
The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. When the announcer
calls "Rotate,” athletes must move to next station immediately. Each of
the three rounds is five minutes, followed by a one-minute rest. One
point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is
What does the registration fee cover?
The $30 fee covers the cost of a team tshirt. You and your team will be able to create a unique team name and decide on tshirt colors. We also give prizes for the team with the most spirit...think costumes, props, etc!!!
Why are we fundraising?
In the past, our annual FGB fundraiser has been a great way to bring
our community together to support great charities—and we chose to
support the Brooklyn Community Foundation
because Brooklyn has been exceptionally good to us and we want to help
give back to the community that CFSBK is proud to call home. If you're
not familiar with BCF, make sure you visit their website to check them
out. Or if you're lazy, at least check out their list of Grantees; we're sure you'll find one or two not far from you!
Will there be a fundraising minimum?
While we'd love for everyone to make wholehearted attempts to raise
funds, there is no fundraising minimum to participate. However, as in
years past, there will be some sweet prizes awarded to the top
Ok, you keep talking about fundraising but how should I do this and when should I begin?
Once our registration deadline ends on September 5th, we'll create teams
consisting of six athletes. Shortly after, athletes will get an email
from us with their team assignments and all of the details to set up
their fundraising pages. We'll be using Crowdrise as our fundraising
platform again and participants will have individual fundraising pages
that will be super easy to share with friends and family. (Check out
last year's main fundraising page HERE!)
Tell me more about the workout. What if I can't do it Rx'd?
Here's Coach Glassman explaining FGB in detail. And don't worry, we have scaling options available!
So the day begins at 9am, but how long will it last? When will my team go?
The length of the event depends on how many total athletes/teams we
have. We run two teams through the workout simultaneously and new
heats start every 20 minutes. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you exactly
what time your team will be going until we get closer to the event. Of
course, we hope that you plan on spending a few hours with us, not only
competing but also supporting your fellow teams. And per usual, we'll
have some tasty adult beverages to enjoy!
What if I can't attend that Saturday, November 4th?
You can still sign up to be a part of a team to participate in
fundraising and get a team tshirt. Unfortunately though we won't be
running a Fight Gone Belated this year.
Ok, I'm sold. Where do I register?
